Clare Collinson is a jewellery designer and maker based in Colwinston, South Wales.
‘Working predominantly in silver, printed papers and resin, every piece of jewellery is individually hand crafted and therefore unique. Inspiration for my work is drawn from illustrations, lino prints and the many doodles and drawings that I have collected in my sketchbooks.
The current range ‘Fable’ is inspired by fairytales and storytelling; as a little girl, I loved being read bedtime stories and my favourite books were those that had been passed down and read so many times the pages were tatty and worn.
Words are printed onto recycled and textured paper, I choose paper, which has slight marks or mottling, this gives each piece a slightly aged and vintage feel. The wearer can then create a story or fairytale of their own…’
